The idea of Constructs as random encounter creatures in Frostgrave seems a bit odd to me.
I’d have thought they’d be much more suited to specific areas/scenarios as guardians, put there by sorcerers and only activated by trespassing intruders. Still, they’re on the random encounter table so I needed three – small, medium and large.
I looked around for alternatives to the official figures as I’m not overly fond of them but nothing really seemed suitable. Everything I found was either too elemental, too robotic and quite often just too big.
So avoiding steam powered Robots, pumpkin headed Scarecrows and rock Elementals (all options that were considered) I decided to just bite the bullet and buy the ‘official’ Frostgrave North Star figures from my FLGS.
The first thing that struck me when I saw them was how small they all are (the photographs from North Star are quite deceptive) and also just how little difference in size there is between the medium and large versions. The smallest is based on a 25mm whilst the other two are on 30mms.
This just leaves the Worm and Snow Leopard from the rulebook random encounter table and then I’m calling my Frostgrave project complete – for now!
